The threat of destructive natural events and significantdegree of vulnerability are constituent parts of every cultural landscape, and canbe recognized as immediate effects of natural processes, as practical countermeasuresto prevent damages, as keeping off the most hazardous areas and, also,as unsuitable acts or wrong interventions into the geographical space.
